An Overview of Cold Load Pickup Issues in Distribution Systems
Abstract:The increased use of schemes of rotating load curtailment owing to limited power availability and high share of thermostatically controlled loads in total load demand has made the study of cold load pickup (CLPU) mandatory. This paper looks into the various aspects associated with the problem of CLPU and explains the phenomenon of CLPU. It reviews various modeling approaches and means of solving CLPU problems together with the affecting factors.
